Good Neighbour and Trustworthy Investor

From the very beginning of its operations, KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. has been conducting a pro-social policy through the Polish Copper Foundation established in 2003. Its creation was a natural consequence of the corporate social responsibility approach adopted by the Company. Since the emergence of the copper industry in the Lower Silesia region, part of the profits from the business operations have always been reinvested to support various regional, national and international projects. The Polish Copper Foundation continues the tradition and develops its charity operations in conformance with the Act on Public Benefit and Voluntary Organisations.


The Polish Copper Foundation wants to maintain and enhance its position of the regional leader in corporate social responsibility. Its advantage is possession of transparent, structured principles of operation, covering both the process of review prior to the grant decision and the process of grant settlement and documentation. The lists of institutional beneficiaries, the grant award principles and regulations are published on the Foundation’s website, together with other documents important for the potential applicants and interested parties.


KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. systematically increases the amount of money contributed to the Foundation for the performance of its tasks: in 2010, the Value of the Foundation’s support was PLN 12.5m, PLN 15m in 2011 and over PLN 19m in 2012 (support to institutions and individuals). Between 2003 and 2012, the Foundation, being the unquestionable leader in social responsibility activities in the region of Lower Silesia and in Poland, supported 1,719 institutional projects with a total amount of PLN 65,741,769.53 and the value of donations to individual beneficiaries totalled PLN 13,936,513.43. In 2012, in accordance with its statutory objectives and within its means, the Polish Copper Foundation tried to respond to various social needs and provided financial assistance to 199 local projects, 98 regional projects and 37 national and international projects.
